Who doesn’t love FREE food and fun times with friends?
If you’re in 5th or 6th grade, come join us for crazy, fun games and pizza! We’ll meet in the PAK room at 5:15pm and will be playing games until 6:45 when Awana starts. (It’d be great if you stayed for Awana too, which ends at 8pm.) All you need to bring is yourself and friend. It’s like the fun of a birthday party but everyone’s invited and you do not bring a gift! No sign-up required.

A simple, common question of teens (and really every age group) is “WHY?” Some may believe that only kids ask “why” in an attempt to learn about the world around them, but truthfully no matter how old you are, that question always remains. WHY? Why… everything!?
At Youth Group on Sundays (SMYG), teens are encouraged to ask this same question of each other and the Bible. The extreme claims that the Bible makes about our existence causes a lot of “why” questions. We spend a half-hour each week (following a half-hour of songs and reflection time led by our students) dedicated to answering life’s “why’s” using the Bible as our guidebook to life.
Last week students wrote down some of their biggest, most pressing questions about life and the Christian faith and we are taking the next semester to answer as many as we can get to.
Do you know a teen who’s good at asking questions? Send them our way! Everyone is welcome.
